    There is a rumour that China may not send their players to MAS Open and Korea Open as they need intensive training.....

    Intensive training, for what, World Championships? That's a long way away ......

    I remember Zhang Ning during the last Malaysian Open, she looked so tired from intensive training, went down to Hwang Hye Youn easily.

    Its not really MILD for Malaysian standard. Zurich is colder right now compare to Austria. Last week the weather is still tolerable. At night its freezing and snowed a little. Good thing its not windy.

    According to news, LYB indeed said that. He said the team will undergo 3 months of intensive training. I guess we can expect some players have great form in 2009 AE. :cool:

    LYB did say so...
    As I said in other threads, the CHN team only cares about OG, WC, Thomas Cup, Uber Cup, Sudirman Cup, AG and maybe AE... not really care about SS...
    All their training program are set according to the major competitions that they really care about...
    So their next year's targets could be WC, AE and Sudirman Cup...
